    Directions

    1. Here is a naturally sweet, refreshing dessert that is a common finale to dinner parties in former French West Africa. Use only the ripest, fullest-flavored fruits; bananas that have just turned yellow and only the sweetest pineapple. If you cannot find large-sized fruit called for in the recipe, equivalent weights of smaller fruits can be used. You can make the salad up to 4 hrs ahead of time, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Add the bananas just before serving, however, or they will turn brown. The fruits must be all cut into very small pieces for the dish to be at its best.
    2. Half the papaya and scoop out its seeds; peel the halves. Cut the flesh into small pieces and place in a large serving bowl.
    3. Peel the mangoes. Slice as much of the flesh off the pit as possible, being careful to capture any juices. Cut the flesh into small pieces. Add the pieces and their juices to the bowl holding the papaya.
